50 shades of black...is still black


In my opinion, February needs a bit of a kick in the butt. Doesn't February make you feel like you would like to go to sleep and not wake up until June? Perhaps it's the endless blocks of pedestrians tempting fate with the head to toe black (and of course the rain). Whatever it is, a titillating movie (and maybe a kick in the wardrobe department), might help the mood a bit. The current movie choice is fairly obvious but Plum can help cure the doldrums in the wardrobe department.

Take a look at some Plum picks...


How fresh, pretty and romantic looking is this? Ultra feminine with a peak of lace (cami) beneath. Add (as above) a statement piece or a collection of eclectic necklaces as the twist neckline would welcome.

Plum front draped top (black, champagne, periwinkle) $79




This is such a wardrobe basic. Basic white t shirt, jacket of choice and (as above) a pair of super comfortable jeans and you're set. Add or subtract accessories if you're feeling so inclined.

Nanavatee asymmetrical slub cotton t shirt (white, hot melon, khaki) $35

Mavi jogger comfort jean (dark sporty) $98

Tobias 2 button jacket (black) $179




Perhaps a great choice for Anastasia for her interview with Christian? Undeniably a great corporate look or even a date (as seen in the front of the email). Black and white together are clearly a great combination, however, any other colour will co-ordinate. Sometimes we're just too busy to construct a complex look, in which case, this works perfectly well as it is.

Tobias zip front fitted jacket (black, ivory) $185  Did you know that Plum now has online sales? www.plum.ca

I think when Drabuary rolls around, we all need a bit of a perk.  Injecting a bit of white into your wardrobe is such an uncomplicated way. And you never know, you might just happen to meet a billionaire (or look like you are one)!

cover looks


"All books are judged by their covers, until they are read" Maryrose Wood. Being judged 'is' a fact of life. However, when I feel fully pulled together, I feel as though people see me, my clothing is no longer the focus, because there is no 'one thing' to distract.  For the most part, do you not find that a jacket pulls together the outfit giving a finished look? A key piece. Maybe it's just me but I adore fall and love my jackets.  My collection is growing and I'd sleep in them if I could.


The fabrication and cut of this jacket is simply exquisite. Most often I find the sleeves of jackets rather large and bulky; these are just perfectly tailored. Don't be fooled by the slightly longer length, falling below thigh level. I've worn mine with jeans and doc's and have seen it worn with a knee length skirt and funky ankle boots. So deceptively versatile, creating a multitude of outfits from one piece, taking you from work, to weekend brunch. It's really a 'try on' must!

Tobias equestrian long jacket (comes in black or grey) $ 220


Isn't this a fun outfit? Yet so doable for a work environment; of course depending on the nature of the business. I love the skinny pants paired with the dangerous heels.


This classic notched collar blazer is so transferrable and convertable. My favorite weekend outfit is (as above) jeans, t shirt and 'the blazer.'  Just so simple and pulled together looking (but comfortable as well).  Just add whatever bit of your own personality you like (scarf, hat) your mood gets to choose.

The length of the jacket, however, often dictates the balance of co-ordinating pieces. Such as how long the skirt, pants or top would best be to look balanced head to toe. When in doubt, Plum staff are only too happy to help with deciphering the possible perplexities of proportions (say that 3 times). This is a mere whiff of the jackets Plum has in store. There is one for everyone (or 3, if you're me). And so beautifully made and designed; will remain your favorites for years to come (as long as you don't sleep in them).

Plum's Tobias jackets are designed and constructed right here in Vancouver and many have co-ordinating pants and skirts. Take a look at some of Plum's other jackets.
